In late July the Corps released their Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) for the entire Nationwide Permit program. Network members spent time in 1999 telling the Corps what this PEIS should consider. Now we will have an opportunity to comment on the PEIS. Our website will be updated to include sample comments developed by the Clean Water Network. If you would like to help develop these sample comments, please contact the Clean Water Network at the number above. The Corps is conducting this PEIS in order to ensure the NWP program only authorizes activities that have minimal individual and cumulative impacts on the aquatic environment.
Please visit the Clean Water Network’s “Legislative Action Center” at www.cwn.org for more information.
